previously banned by a law that expired in 2004. it was first initiated and passed by joe biden. he is the right person for the president to have appointed to come up with what we should do next. regulating assault weapons certainly falls within the bounds of the second amendment. so does everything else we are urging. this is not a constitutional question. it is a question of political courage. the supreme court -- the one that defines what the constitution means and says -- has ruled that reasonable regulations are consistent with the second amendment. when the gun lobby raises the second amendment, it is nothing but a red herring. it is time for second amendment defenders in congress to call them on it. the three measures i just mentioned, we will require leadership from both the president and members of congress. there are other steps that president obama can take without congressional approval. at any time he chooses, with just the stroke of a pen. vice president biden understands this, and we hope his recommendations will include at least these four steps we have urged. first,

spooked by something that happened 20 years ago. don't forget, joe biden who was running this was in the middle of that fight, then, too as a senator. so democrats are completely spooked by the gun issue. that's not going to change. what they have to be convinced of is that public opinion has shifted because of newtown and that there are some of these fights, not all of them, some of these fights that they can win. i mean, republicans are worried if they vote for some of these issues, they are going to be primaried by more conservative republicans. democrats understand that this may be an opportunity. >> gloria borger, thanks so much for that. >> sure. >>> you're about to hear oprah winfrey's reaction to lance armstrong's admission that he's a cheater. >>> later, does another member of the clinton family have political ambitions?

's bad to leave congress out of the equation. the good thing is it appears that joe biden did solicit people from both sides of the aisle on this debate to come and have this discussion with him. i think one of the most important things that many americans agree with is that this should be a comprehensive approach. you may not agree with every tenet of what the president will talk about today or any of them, but at least it was a comprehensive approach and to hear that the nra is at least happy with some of the things involved and maybe other people who feel differently than the nra are happy with some of the things, i don't think you'll ever have a plan where every single person is going to be happy with it. so let's see what it is first before we judge it completely. in the meantime, one of the things that's causing big stir is the fact that the president is going to be surrounded when he makes this announcement by children from around the country who wrote the president letters in the wake of that tragedy. so that has become a big question today. we know that imagery in politics, s
